    Broadcom Drivers Broken in 22.04

    I lost my functionality on my BCMWL 4352 when I upgraded to 22.04. Has worked fine for many years and many upgrades. I skipped from Ubuntu 18LTS to 22.04. Went back and installed 20(.04?) and the hardware does still work. I've tried purging bcmwl-kernel-source and reinstalling but it always fails. Here is the message in the make.log that has been the issue throughout everything I have tried:

    dang, I had high hopes for that, as there were a fair number of upgrades out there.
    No Joy

    Re: Broadcom Drivers Broken in 22.04

    a little different path than the one mentioned in your other post


    curt@talon:/var/lib/dkms/bcmwl/6.30.223.271+bdcom/build$ ls
    dkms.conf lib Makefile Makefile.orig make.log patches src

    also here is the version

    curt@talon:/var/lib/dkms/bcmwl/6.30.223.271+bdcom/build$ sudo dpkg -s bcmwl-kernel-source | grep Version
    Version: 6.30.223.271+bdcom-0ubuntu8

    Please reboot and then do:

    Code:
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt -y upgrade
    sudo apt autoremove
    sudo apt -y install build-essential
    sudo apt install --reinstall bcmwl-kernel-source
    Post the result if there is any error.
